    Just ordered my first rifle :D - best wife ever

    As an early B-day present my wife let me get a rifle :o, I searched for over a month and only came up with some "lower end" choices. I just ordered it and can't wait for it to get here. Thanks to Timmy for suggesting it, and everyone else for teaching me what to look for.



    Palmetto State Armory AR-15 Rifle M4 Optic Ready w/ FN Barrel - Reg. Price $749.99

    This is it ^^

    Total was ~$715 + $45 for the transfer fee

    I'm still going to need to buy a rear sight, mags, and ammo, but all of that can be purchased later on.

    Ok Burns! I approve!!! I think you will like it. One thing, flat top with the optics rail. Depending on the optic that you choose you may see a shadow or ghost from the front site, which is also a gas block. You may want to change out the front site with gas block at a later date. Not a big deal but you have to get the correct size gas block. Some gas blocks have just a rail or others have a fold down option for an iron site. I like the Yankee Hill parts but they are expensive ( but worth it). they also have a model with a rail on the bottom and the top.

    ^Not to be a killjoy or anything^^^^^^^^

    but what'd the Mrs. do that she hasen't fessed up about yet?

    Hows the car looking these days?
    Your best buddy been hanging around lately a little too much?
    Is her mom coming to visit for 3-4 months,?
    You need to start investigating.

    Oh, BTW, great find on the rifle, enjoy!!!!!!!!!

    Please, more than a couple! AR mags are ultimately "consumables"... I'd say six per AR is a good minimum to work with.

    Ooooooo! That's sweet! Your wife LET you get a rifle? That's good I reckon. (what sort of contract did you have to sign at home?) Hey....I figure it's worth it even if there's a breach of contract in the future. Don't worry about it so long as you keep the freezer, microwave, and microwave dinners, you'll be good on the range! LOL!

    Welcome to the EBR club. You've no doubt made it onto no less than 1/2 a dozen government watch lists plus the Brady campaign. But, you're in good company. And a fine rifle. atctimmy steered you to a decent rifle. Enjoy it, and become proficient with it. You may need it one day.
